Kelly - Painting 28

This is the same White-throated Sparrow that shows up in painting 27, but here he's flown to a sparser tree (instead of the tangle of branches), and he is perched high above me...looking down. It was an interesting sight because he was still puffed up for maximum heat insulation and could barely see over his puffy belly feathers. Snow had not accumulated on these unprotected branches, and the clouds were getting darker. Although I painted the branches tight, I decided to make the bird and sky watery and loose.

Beautiful, Kelly! I love his puffed up look and nice job on the sky!
